One of the big events at the Cable Show is naming the recipients of this year's Vanguard Awards -- NCTA's recognition of individuals who have made significant contributions to the industry. Cathy Wilson, Founder, President and Publisher of Broadband Library, was one of this year's recipients. Broadband Library is a quarterly publication that goes to all members of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE).
Earlier this year Cathy invited us to write a column for Broadband Library called "Two Sides to Every Story". We use opposing pages in each issue to present conflicting viewpoints on a cable/telecom industry topic. Our first two columns have disagreed about the reality of the broadband home, and whether cable operators should participate in the metro Wi-Fi market.
